#Learn 🧠🐍#python: Sometimes when programming in python they're situations when you want to copy the contents of an existing list into another. Python has several ways of achieving that. In this thread you will learn different ways of achieving that with the help of examples. Image
1) Using the equal (=) sign operator:
Using = operator you can copy the contents of an existing list onto another/new list. But there's a problem with this method which I will explain on the next section. Image
The problem with the above method is that if you modify the new copied_fruits list the original list (fruits) is modified too, this is because the copied list (copied_fruits) is referencing/ pointing to same fruits list in memory.

Let's talk cybersecurity.

1/7
News of COVID19 vaccines' side effects are so wild that rumors are spreading of how many #SickDays you'll burn to get both (repeat: "both") shots.

So let's compare it to the history of #computer antivirus vaccine use...
2/7
Historically, users gleefully installed #computer vaccines when they were released (typically a few days) after a deadly global virus outbreak "that cost millions of computers' lives and billions of dollars in damages."

But then users came to a rumored realization...
3/7
They said "you'll pay a severe penalty for #antivirus vaccines."

Users rumored it made their computers sluggish; that it constantly wasted their time to install vaccine updates every {month | week | day}; that it interfered with important company processes; blah blah blah

Let's talk cybersecurity.

1/6 Florida's official #COVID19 website has a problem: migrants who picked watermelon weeks ago racked up high numbers in central FL counties but have since returned to southern FL counties...
2/6 Migrants sent home w/ #COVID19 remain counted in central FL; their data doesn't "transfer" to another county.

And contrary to any PR statements, those migrants who later need hospitalization end up counted as having #COVID19 in *two* counties.

Let's be CLEAR, though:
3/6 Double-counting a case of #COVID19 only occurs when a patient (a) gets tested in one county and (b) seeks hospitalization in another county.

(Remember, we're talking about #cybersecurity!)

For example, Levy County FL cases look like this when it should be ~120 fewer: Image

Eric Capuano makes a vital point in the tweet below

1/6 So let's review my 2009 column to learn *why* I continue to #critique the cybersecurity industry "at a time like this." In it, I barked "computer security experts lack focus on Twitter": web.archive.org/web/2009082305…
2/6 I often retweet folks who just want to read about #cybersecurity issues from the cybersecurity experts they follow -- not about their hotel rooms or airplane food or the politics of the day. Those folks want non-cyber to go on a personal account:
3/6 More to the point -- I insist THIS really is the perfect time to view #cybersecurity through the lens of real-world events!

SFAIK I'm the ONLY person in this entire global industry who compares #computer virus panic to all the COVID19 virus #panic:

#US #IndustrialProduction numbers were released yesterday for Apr-end. The picture isn't pretty. Showing below how bad it was in the last 2 months in actual numbers. (comparing Feb-end with Apr-end; Grey areas show previous recessions). The index itself declined 15.3% (1)
PART1: Industries underperforming the IP Index

1. #MotorVehicles & Parts - down 80% in 2 months. It's the LOWEST since 1972. (2)
2. #DurableConsumerGoods - down 47% in 2 months (3)

This morning a man who last spoke to me ~16yrs ago texted me to see if I was still at my old phone#.

He's now a senior broker in NYC with a VP title.

He read some wild story about the president shutting down CDC's "virus hype machine" (?) and it triggered an old memory.
2/4 Brokers like him called me from 1997 to 2003 to discuss ways to make money from #antivirus stocks. Everything about the industry confused them; I gave them insight to short-sell @McAfee & @symantec & @TrendMicro.
3/4 His phone call proved simple and straightforward: he wanted renewed insight in order to PROFIT FROM FEAR.

Contrary to some people's beliefs, I see NO ethical problem in his desire to profit.

If you *didn't* create the fear and you *don't* sell snake oil, then be my guest!

My fiancé asked me in a disturbed tone of voice:

"In your 35yrs of #computer virus hysteria ... how did you ever *recover* from it?"

I took a long pause.

"We returned to 'normalcy'," I began.

"People went back to their old ways of computer hygiene..."
2/4 "...while those who parroted fear wound up with some new software tools, maybe snuck in a new server for the farm.

"No one in power got fired for their panicked reactions. Lower-downs who got fired 'out of an abundance of caution' remained fired..."
3/4 "...and we collectively rationalized ALL our self-inflicted damages by chanting 'it was all worth it if it saved even just one computer performing a critical function."

My fiancé blurted "so all the [self-]destruction didn't matter?!?"

And I was forced to admit...

Hear me out: this has everything to do with cyber.

1/5 Three decades of #computer virus panic leads me to predict #COVID19 will lead to a major reduction in U.S. food poisonings -- but only over the short term.

I've long hypothesized that many so-called "food poisonings"...
2/5 ...actually stem from unsanitary conditions AT HOME.

Somebody plops a greasy taco bag or a leftover container on the kitchen counter / table. That residue spoils.

Then it transfers to Timmy's Big Mac. He pukes & poops and his parents auto-blame it on McDonald's.
3/5 I believe the U.S. has grown so "fast-foody" that we've collectively lost our discipline for kitchen & dining room cleanliness.

Now, suddenly, panic has swept the U.S. Everybody hoards @Clorox wipes and, wow, actually uses them!

These wipes are closely related to...

Medienvertrag einer "Freien Schule" der #Waldorfpädagogik. Ist diese Einmischung noch vertretbar?

Keine Handys in der Schule, ok. Aber auch zuhause will die Schule #Handys, #Computer, #Filme und sogar #Hörspiele vertraglich verbieten. "Risiken und Gefahren" drohen!

Thread. 👇
Durch die Smartphone-Nutzung entstehe eine nicht näher benannte, gefährliche "#Sogwirkung", sie sollten nicht vor dem 14. Lebensjahr verwendet werden.

Über die Nutzung digitaler Medien will man vorgeblich aufklären - natürlich mit dem Fokus auf die "Risiken und Gefahren".
Der #Waldorf-Medienvertrag besagt:

"Wir verabreden, dass bei Spielverabredungen, Kindergeburtstagen und sonstigen Treffen der Kinder der digitale #Medienkonsum generell nicht erwünscht ist.

Das gilt für #Smartphones, #Computer, #Filme, #Spiele und #Hörspiele gleichermaßen".

#Security for #Election2020 is at stake right now.
1) #ElectionSecurity is for our national defense. It is worth investing in.
2) If we do not have security REQUIREMENTS w/funding some states will spend poorly. That is bad for tax payers & bad for voters. #SMARTelections
At our #Senate briefing on #ElectionSecurity we brought national experts on #computer systems, #security and #audits together to demonstrate why it's critically important that congressional funding for election security includes REQUIREMENTS for security.

1-Temel veri yapıları (linkedList, map, tree vb) ve temel algoritmalar (sıralama, arama vb)

Sıfırdan kodlama ihtiyacınız büyük ihtimalle hiç olmayacak. Ancak ihtiyaç anında doğru yerde doğrusunu seçebilmek için o veri yapısının veya algoritmanın nasıl çalıştığını bilmeniz şart
2- Network Temelleri

OSI Modelini ve 7 katmanı; temel protokolleri(#TCP-IP, TCP-UDP, #HTTP, #FTP), güvenlik protokollerini(#HTTPS, #SFTP, #SSL), monitoring protokolleri(#SNMP, ICMP) bilmekte fayda var. Ayrıca ağ ekipmanlarının görevlerini tanımak ve 7Layer yerlerini bilmek lazım
